The country of India is home to so many famous things. The Taj Mahal. Delicious cuisine. Tigers. Mowgli. Yeah, Mowgli from The Jungle Book was from here. If you want to find out what else this country holds, search Wotif’s awesome deals for India hotels and let the adventure begin.
Let’s be honest, when you think of India, one of the first things that comes to mind is the Taj Mahal, located in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. It’s probably the country’s most recognisable feature and should be high on your list of places to see. Mughal emperor Shah Jahan decided to build the thing in order to house the tomb of his favourite wife. She must’ve been some wife to get this sort of treatment!
If you find yourself in the capital of New Delhi (and you probably will at one point or another), you’ve got to go Ghandi Smriti, also known as the Birla House. This where Mahatma Ghandi spent the last 144 days of his life. It’s since been turned into a museum dedicated to “The Father of the Nation”.
Most India holidays kick off when you land in the capital at Indira Ghandi International Airport (DEL), 16 km from downtown. If this is the city where your India accommodation is located, get on the Delhi Airport Metro Express train line that runs from the airport metro station to the New Delhi metro rail station in the city centre. If you’re interested in seeing other parts of the country, the most widely used mode of transport is the train.
